Crush Crypto started just over 6 months ago in June 2017. We just wanted to use this post to reflect on our accomplishments and share our gratitude to everyone who has been supporting us along the way.
They say that 1 day in crypto is equal to 1 week in the traditional financial market and it is very true. In these 6 months, so much has happened in the cryptocurrency market. It has also grown substantially, and so have we. We learned so much in our journey so far.
Here are some of the accomplishments for Crush Crypto over the last 6 months:
- Published 69 ICO analysis reports and 30 weekly market updates. As of January 9, 2018, projects that we gave a positive rating generated a median return of 1186%, projects with a neutral rating generated a median return of 654% and projects with a negative rating generated a median return of 452%.
- Gained instant traction when we launched the Crush Crypto website, which has grown substantially and now has over 200,000 monthly visits.
- Over 7,000 people signed up on our email list.
- Started our YouTube channel in August 2017 and currently have around 18,000 subscribers.
- Started the Crusher of the Month series in October 2017 and the calls have been great so far – 0x went up by 10x and Hedge Token went up by 20x after we made the call.
- Launched our first Crush Crypto Research Challenge in November 2017 and received over 50 high quality submissions from undergraduate students around the world.
- Expanded the team to 5 people – we now have more capacity than ever to produce top notch content for our readers.
- Started Crush Crypto Core (CCC) in October 2017 and was among the first 12 DAA managers to be selected by ICONOMI following a rigorous vetting process involving over 150 applications. CCC began with a seed capital of $100,000 and returned 390% in just over 3 months. It now has over $3.7 million of assets under management.
- Side note: ICONOMI is making great things happening very quickly. They announced today that they are raising the tier-1 deposit limit to $14,000 and are now supporting 189 countries. You can have a much higher limit without needing to go through the video call to verify your identity.
- Tokenized CCC as an ERC-20 token in early January 2018. We are currently in discussions with various exchanges to get it listed so as to have a way to provide liquidity for the token.
Roadmap in future
We are always thinking about how to improve our research and provide more value to our visitors. With the help of our 3 awesome interns, we can now expand on the scope of content that we provide.
We will probably begin with a beginner’s series for newcomers since there are so many people interested to learn more. Feel free to leave us a comment if you have any suggestions on what you would like to see.
We have also opened a Telegram channel for Crush Crypto so we can have high quality cryptocurrency discussions there. If you are interested, feel free to join us.
Lastly, we just want to thank you all for making this happen for us. Without you, we cannot achieve so much in such a short period of time.
I know that many of us have made a substantial amount of money in the last year, so we can ask ourselves: what would you do if money was not an issue. Well, for me, I would be doing exactly what I am doing right now, so thank you for letting this happen!
